Larcomes Solicitors recently hosted the “Buddy Courage” night, which proved to be a very competitive Quiz evening supported by local law firms and Portsmouth businesses alike, in aid of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth.

Buddy Courage was born at the Queen Alexandra Hospital, barely breathing on the 2nd of October 2017 weighing in at a tiny 4.4 pounds due to problems with his Mum’s (Natalie Courage) Placenta. Natalie who is the Administration Manager at Larcomes decided to organise a quiz and BBQ for other law firms and local businesses and to round off the evening and keeping it a family affair, her husband Brad played music at the end of the evening.

Natalie said ‘When Buddy was born he was tiny and was barely breathing, but he had the best care in the NICU to bring him out strong and healthy, without them he wouldn’t be here today’.

The night was packed with 16 teams of 6 people tying to win and come first. Mediation Now, Churchers, Stokes Solicitors, College Chambers, Glanvilles, Larcomes LLP, Hampshire County Council and Cafcass were to name a few who attended. The raffle to win a ‘Google Home’ was won by Glanvilles and the play doh round where each team had to make an emoji was won by Larcomes commercial team (picture below of the winning emjoi, Unicorn).

However, there can only be one winner and that accolade went to Churchers who won with 83/102.

The night raised a fantastic £1375 in total and showed how local law firms and businesses pulled together in support of the fantastic work of the Neonatal team at Portsmouth Hospital (
